Potsdam got out to a 9-0 lead behind three layups from Jakia Howard and a three by Carley Hill. For Brockport, they did not score until three minutes in thanks to free throws from Zairea Hannah. The first field goal of the game for the Golden Eagles came when Zoe Zutes hit a three-pointer with 5:57 remaining. The last field goal for Brockport came from Ana Lee after hitting a three at the buzzer. Brockport in total shot 3-18 in the opening frame.

It did not get any better for Brockport as they shot 3-20 in the second quarter and 5-14 in the third.

Heading into the fourth Potsdam had the lead 45-36 thanks to the scoring of Howard and Hill, both in double figures, and the offensive struggles continued for Brockport. Stephanie Jean-Baptiste was able to knock down a three to cut the lead to six to begin the fourth, but after that, it was all Howard.

Howard put up six points in the fourth quarter adding to her total of 18 on the day and she hauled in 11 rebounds to go along with it. Carley Hill finished with a respectable 13 and Jenna Cotter got it going in the fourth adding four to her total giving her 10.

Jean-Baptiste was the leading scorer for Brockport with 13 and the only other player in double figures was Hannah as she finished with a double-double: 10 points and 14 rebounds.

“I think we lost sight of what we are supposed to do in our system,” Lee said. “We need to get the ball out there and push it more. I felt like there was a lot more dribbling and we need to pass the ball more, get those easier shots, run our offense, and actually execute it.”

After the road trip, Brockport goes back to .500 with a 7-7 record while the Bears get a much-needed win and improve to 6-7. Brockport will look to bounce back in the Vlog hosting the Fredonia Blue Devils this Tuesday, January 16th, at 4 p.m.
